I'm male 62yrs type 2 diabetes taking metphormin 1500 mg daily.
I have a uti and I don't seem to be able to bring my numbers down from 290.
Is it the infectiion or is the medication no longer effective?

Generally speaking, blood sugar levels do tend to elevate in the presence of infection and usually return to a more manageable level once the infection subsides.
